Toby Hill Lock-Back Trapper, Stag Scales, File-Worked Liners (SOLD)
Toby Hill has now been making knives for more than 5 years. His knives do not reflect the relatively short time he has been at it. They have become increasingly more refined, with a higher level of attention to detail and functionality. They are the work of a much more seasoned slip-joint and lock-back knifemaker. No wonder, Toby learned to make knives from none other than Bill Ruple, a master at making traditional patterned folders. Toby's work is clean, and he has a great eye. Toby has definitely become an accomplished knifemaker in his own right. This knife is Brand New and direct from Toby's table at the 2021 Blade Show.
This lock-back Trapper features a CPM-154 stainless steel blade with some fine jimping on the spine, and beautifully matched natural stag scales with an inlaid 416 stainless Remington Bullet shield on the presentation side. The bolster is 416 stainless steel, as are the pins, lined lanyard hole, and liners. Toby has done some tasteful, fine file-work on the liners. He's also included a braided leather lanyard. The blade locks up tight with no play, and the blade seating is centered. Nice comfortable nick, with a smooth, even pull. Great walk-and-talk from the "student" of the master. Comes in a Hill Knives padded, zippered case.
